Curator and Pornbishop Aunia Kahn selected a group of 23 lowbrow/pop surrealist artists to interpret one card each of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck. It will debut October 1 with a full show at Los Angeles's La Luz de Jesus Gallery, a book, and of course a deck of cards. The LOWBROW TAROT PROJECT. You can see the entire show at the La Luz de Jesus site here.
We found via WickedHalo an interesting review of Mark Ryden's solo show at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York. “The central theme of “The Gay 90s: Old Tyme Art Show” references the idealism of the 1890s while addressing the role of kitsch and nostalgia in our current culture. “In the modern era, sentimentality and beauty have been disdained in the art world. This new work explores the line between attraction and repulsion to kitsch, and between beauty and banality.”

Our pornbishop Molly Crabapple just wrote a great bunch of informative pop surrealist coverage of this year’s Art Basel. “...Pop surrealism (sometimes called Lowbrow or New Contemporary) is the stuff in the magazine Juxtapoz. It's the well-rendered, representational, pop culture inspired and exuberantly surreal art that started coming out of California fifteen years ago,” she writes. (via Juxtapoz.com)

Hey Guys! Patrick Byers tooks some great shots of the show I was in that opened a few weeks ago. I was on the same wall as some of my heroes Hajime Soroyama and R.Crumb. I am geeking out right now. It's sort of ironic that I was in this Car related art show and my car was stolen a couple of days ago. Life sure is funny, ain't it? www.pinupsonparade.com
